University Saint Joseph (USJ) students of the Faculty of Law and Political Science competed in the Private International Law competition (CDIP), which was organized by the prestigious University of Paris-Saclay and Linklaters.
Under the first chamber of the Paris Court of Appeal, the Lebanese team, composed of Michel Ghawi, Joelle Stephan, and Marianne Zogheib won the second prize in the competition.
During the competition, students had to deal with an international litigation file involving conflicts between jurisdictions and laws.
Each team, faced with an unprecedented problem, had to build an innovative argument in support of its position, from the drafting of conclusions to the pleading before a jury simulating the Paris Commercial Court.
